The fierce battle against corruption is being disrupted by Nigeria’s slow judicial system and delay tactics by defence lawyers, the (EFCC) said on Sunday in Ibadan.
Mr Kazeem Oseni, the Deputy Head of its Ibadan Zonal Office, stated this recently.
“The EFCC is committed to the anti-corruption war; we have made some progress but the operating environment has not been very encouraging.
“Issues bordering on legal technicalities, lack of cooperation from States and local governments and public attitude towards corruption keep undermining our efforts to tame the menace,” he said.
“We want to ensure that every investigation is properly carried out; we want to make sure that there are no escape routes for those found to be evidently corrupt,” he said.
“We all have roles to play, either as individuals or corporate entities. It is when we change our attitude and support the fight that it can succeed,” he said.
